* CaptureTheFlag: Brenner fits this, but like all PvP here, it's not really used much.

** Many of the names you can give to a Puppetmaster's automaton are references to military equipment (E100, X-32, [=A7V=]) and sci-fi ([[Film/ForbiddenPlanet Robby]], [[Franchise/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy Marvin]], [[StarTrek Data]]).

* CompletionMockery: Among the quests that you can work on is [[spoiler:one that has you fish for ten thousand carp. Do this and you are awarded with a new fishing rod and a certificate of mockery]].
--> [[spoiler:"This certifies that you have gathered no less than ten thousand carp. Please spend your time in a manner more beneficial to society. Your achievement is noteworthy for its utter lack of meaning." With heartfelt disapproval, Gallijaux & Joulet]]

Added DiffLines:

* TheArtifact: Largely averted in the game proper, but played straight with the [=PlayOnline=] Viewer, a program that served as a digital social media hub for ''FFXI'' and other online multiplayer games from Square. While the program supported many games in its hayday, by 2013, ''FFXI'' was the only game that still used it. With its social media functionality either removed or unused, it now essentially serves as a glorified launcher.

Added DiffLines:

* WorldOfActionGirls: Whether it was intentional or not, the main NPC protagonist of ''every'' major expansion has been female. [[PirateGirl Lion]] in launch and ''Rise of the Zilart'', [[BareFistedMonk Prishe]] in ''Chains of Promathia'', [[MarionetteMaster Aphmau]] in ''Treasures of Aht Urhgan'', [[DanceBattler Lilisette]] in ''Wings of the Goddess'', [[BadassBookworm Arciela]] in ''Seekers of Adoulin'', and [[TheApprentice Iroha]] in ''Rhapsodies of Vana'diel''. Let alone other fan favorite characters like [[BreakoutCharacter Shantotto]], [[MasterSwordsman Curilla]], and [[{{Samurai}} Ayame]].

Added DiffLines:

* TemporaryOnlineContent: Some items from limited time events or obsolete content are no longer available and cannot be traded.


* TheEmpire: Shantotto claims to have one of her own in her expansion. Also, the Orcish Empire is a state to the north that invaded the [[TheKingdom San d'Oria]] region, so all the orcs in the game are just the expeditionary force of a larger empire.
** Not to mention the Empire of Aht Urhgan, although this has some aspects of TheKingdom as well from a trope perspective.

* TheGoodKingdom: All three of the joinable nations fall under this trope to some extent, although the Kingdom of San d'Oria is probably the straightest example because it's a monarchy as well. The Marquisate of Tavnazia and the Grand Duchy of Jeuno may also fall under this, but have certain mitigating factors [[spoiler:what with the former being destroyed except for a hole in the ground and the latter being ruled by a secretly evil Archduke.]] The sacred city of Adoulin used to be this, as it often mentions its founder kind, but has long transitioned to a system of government mediated by multiple factions.

Having gained a reputation for being intensely-unfriendly to beginners, ''Final Fantasy XI'' has softened in recent years by introducing a multitude of tutorials, stat-boosters and experience bonuses designed to help new players get off to a running start. There is even [[http://finalfantasyxi.com/freetrial/ a 14-day trial for new players to try the game without devoting to it.]] With that said, the game is still less "casual" than market leaders like ''WorldOfWarcraft''.

* FantasticRacism: Fairly light in the game itself, and light in the player base compared to WorldOfWarcraft, but it exists. Some think Tarutaru are evil little demons hiding behind their cuteness, Elvaan are total jerks, etc. It should be noted that these are mainly restricted to their home cities, for instance, Galka in [[TheEmpire Aht Urhgan]] act and are treated pretty much the same as anyone else there.
